CommScope and Fluke team up
Tuesday, 06 February, 2018
CommScope’s exclusive SYSTIMAX link loss calculator will now be incorporated in Fluke Networks’ CertiFiber Pro Optical Loss Test Set (part of the company’s Versiv Cabling Certification System) and the company’s LinkWare Live cloud service.
This marks a transformational change in the certification of ultra-low-loss singlemode and high bandwidth multimode fibre-optic network projects in data centres.
CommScope’s calculator is a tool that accurately computes total link loss performance for SYSTIMAX low and ultra-low loss systems. The proprietary test requirements set performance targets that greatly exceed the industry standards, providing superior support for high-speed data network applications and architectures. The integration of the link loss calculator with Fluke Network’s Versiv provides automated performance for warranty certification for both singlemode and multimode fibre systems.
“Our research has shown that eliminating errors in the certification process leads to significant savings for cabling contractors,” said Eric Conley, VP and GM of Fluke Networks. “By building the calculator into Versiv and LinkWare Live, customers can reduce complexity and ensure that certification is done right the first time.”
The CertiFiber Pro is said to improve efficiency of fibre-optic certification, simplifying set-up, eliminating errors and speeding up troubleshooting — and features a three-second two-fibre/two-wavelength test. Its modular design also supports optical time-domain reflectometry, fibre end-face inspection and copper certification modules. Fluke Networks’ LinkWare Live cloud service allows project managers to configure and track multiple testers and projects from their office, saving time and further reducing the chance of set-up errors.
CommScope has partnered with Fluke Networks to help ensure optimum fibre-optic cabling performance.
